In Their Own Words – Evan Hunt

Every year, hundreds of leaders receive training from Patriot Academy. And every year that number is increasing! Through email updates, our social media, and the Patriot Press, we work to keep you informed about the impact that supporters like you are having through Patriot Academy’s work.

It’s one thing for us to tell you about the impact Patriot Academy is having, and the difference it is making in the hearts and lives of America’s leaders, but it’s another thing for us to show you.

And what better way than through the testimony of the students themselves.


What first got you interested in Patriot Academy?

A good friend told me about Patriot Academy and I loved the idea of strengthening my world view and getting training to make me a better communicator!

Was the experience what you had expected? Why or why not?

Not really! It was so much better. Everyday was full of excitement and I was always learning something new from the awesome guest speakers and my fellow Patriot Academy students!

Has Patriot Academy changed the direction where you see your life heading?

Patriot Academy gave me assurance about where my life is headed. It strengthened me in what I feel called to do. I always knew that I wanted to do something in the political realm, and Patriot Academy has equipped me to do just that.

What particular skills did Patriot Academy teach you that you are using today?

The training at Patriot Academy definitely upped my public speaking abilities. It has helped me articulate my position in a professional manner and to be able to hold a civil, educated debate with someone with opposing views.

What opportunities and/or connections came as a result of Patriot Academy?

Because of Patriot Academy, I made some great friends in my fellow students. We have had the opportunity to get together and help out with some of our local legislators!

What was the most important thing you learned at Patriot Academy?

The most important thing I learned at Patriot Academy is, even though being a Biblical, constitutional conservative may not be the easiest thing to be these days, we are not alone. We can make change, as long as we stand up for what is right.
